Jitters | VOD




A 16-year old Icelandic boy’s first kiss with another boy gives him “jitters”–feelings he can’t deny. This is a well-written film that captures the confusion and excitement of being a teenager, with an attractive ensemble cast. The film follows the lives of several teens and the challenges they face, in particular with their parents/guardians.

“A film that may get a tad melodramatic at time, but still understands teen life – especially if you’re gay – and the difficulties of trying to find yourself as an individual when you’re a hotpot of confused hormones and emotions.” – Big Gay Picture Show
